The Chatham 
College Seal 

"May Our Daughters Be 
As Cornerstones" 

The College's Latin motto dates from 

the occasion of the layout of the first 

cornerstone of the first new College 

building in 1871 and is taken from 

Psalm 144, verse 12, of a 1579 Latin 

translation of the Hebrew Bible. It 

expresses the founders' hope of 

providing service to society.

Orientation: 
Class of 2000!! 

This year's group of first years 
and new students were 



enthusiastic and excited to 

begin their careers as Chatham 

College students. As usual, the 

Orientation Staff worked hard 

to design and implement 
activities to allow new students 
to become acquainted with the 

college and each other. 
Seemingly, their efforts were a 
success as seen in one first- 
year student's comments: "I 




a great time at 



didn't even have time to be 
homesick!''
